We couldnt have experienced more authentic italian food than we did at Zio Sam. The atmosphere, service and the total experience was outstanding. Needless to say this is why we ate there 3 out of our 5 days in italy. ALL the staff make you feel like family. We are definately returning on our next visit to this part of... More

If you in the area I cannot recommend this restaurant enough. Staff, views, food it has the lot. Very well priced (including the prosecco). If you want an off the track not in the middle of a busy town then go for this place. I would recommend the spaghetti alle vongole or what their version of this.

This warm, hospitable family run restaurant is probably a favourite with the locals. Reasonable prices coupled with high quality food and good, professional, friendly service gets 5 stars from me. We have eaten dinner twice here this week while renting a villa in piano di Sorrento. The menu is broad but typical Italian. Pizzas are good. Pastas are good. Special... More

My wife and I stopped in here for lunch. We were treated to a traditional three-course Italian lunch with dessert. Everything was fresh out of the garden grown out back which we had a tour of after the meal. Everything here is fresh and local, including the style of cuisine. The owner checked in on us several times to make... More

We stopped off on our way to Praiano for a meal at about 10.30pm. We were welcomed by Zio Sam himself. This restaurant is a family owned business, and the food is simply superb, and very reasonable. You will find this place on the road between Sorrento and Praiano, it is well advertised from the top of the road, but... More

Our tour guide recommended this place. He said his family eats here a lot. We went for lunch and we were not disappointed. Food was excellent and the service was great. The best thing we ate was a stuffed with cheese zucchini flower deep fried and it was delicious! would definitely recommend this place.

We had rented a villa a few miles away. The owner suggested he could recommend a local restaurant who would collect us and drop back to the villa. We decided to take a chance on the potential expense thinking that if we were hit with a big bill it would be a one off. Not recognising any wine on the... More

This is an excellent authentic gem. We are staying around the corner, and due to the long drive in from Rome we were looking for someplace close by. The food was excellent, warm service, good vibe (locals and non). We recommend and would return.

Visited twice during our stay in Vico Equense, love this place. The food is incredible, and the whole experience was superb. Picked up from our hotel and dropped back after eating, staff go beyond expectations. Highly recommended

Our guide to us to this place on the way back to Naples from Positano. All locals...don't think there was a single tourist in the place other than us. Great views and excellent food. Highly recommend the fried zucchini flowers stuffed with mozzarella and the caprese salad.
